Why Did You??

Why Did You??

A Poem by poetforlife

Just penning out regret over a love that is lost to me


Why did you make me fall for you

so hard without a net?

Why did you never warn me

you were a love I won't forget?

Why did you kiss me gently

and take away my fears?

Why did you make that promise

to love me all of your years?

Why did you make my life

so much more than it could be?

Why did you walk on clouds with me

where both our hearts were free?

Why did you take me fishing

and laugh to bait my hook?

Why did you wear that hat?

Don't you know how cute you looked?

Why did you promise things

that you cannot take back?

Why did you follow through

become all I never had?

Why did you touch my soul

with the imprint of your heart?

Why did you kiss my tears away

whenever they would start?

Why did you become the one

that I was meant to find?

Why did you make me want you

from now til the end of time?

Why did you let me lose you

so foolish the choice I made?

Why did you let me cash that check

the price too high to pay?

Why did you let me leave

knowing the path was wrong?

Why did you let the music fade

that was our special song?

Why did you let my heart fall

so far with no reprieve?

Why did you let me go,

How could you let me leave?

This creative process is such a great outlet for me. You can pretty much tell my whole life through my poetry. I love to write. It is water, breath and air to me. It's the cheapest form of therapy I k.. more..
